Expert Reply:

The Timbren system might actually cause the bounce to increase since it will push the suspension back up harder. Typically WD system bounce is due to using a weight distribution system that is rated too high for the tongue weight of the trailer.

You didn't mention what system you have but the correct one for a 4,800 lb trailer would be the part # FA94-00-0600 which has a tongue weight range of 400-600 lbs. If you have a higher rated round bar setup you could swap the bars of it to the part # FA94-02-0699 and you'd have the proper rated system.
